Gypsy's Photo Gallery

Speeding Free


Melissa A. Henwood

As the hectic Monday ends
I climb into my car
accelerate through city streets
merge onto the freeway
recline and sigh as I move
into the fast lane

Esoteric watercolor sounds
fill the is "The Cure"
"Love Song" begins, my muscles relax
as the pylons go flying by
The sliding miles purge me
of the workday
I revel in the speed of the open lane

Hauting guitar chords
from "Wicked Game" begin
as I feel the G force of a fast, long turn
As I arrive, I am refreshed, rejuvinated,
